I know this has already been suggested, but I was unable to reply to the topic I found.
Like the subject says: We need Quck for Linux.
I can't even label my post appropriately!

I'm trying to make DashWare work, but once again--it's only available for Windows.

There are also some software suggestions in this article that will help: https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/Programs-to-View-and-Edit-Videos

There are a gazillion video editors for Linux that work, but I haven't found one yet that can include gauges using GoPro's metadata. I think I'm going to have to install Windows and use DashWare.

Dashware is pretty good, but now I find that it doesn't support gauges for time-lapse video. It looks like speed may work, but not the other gauges.
Dashware requires one specific xml file from Quik in order to work with video from the Hero 7. Dashware also crashes when rendering video if you don't have an audio track (as in time lapse video). Add music, and you get scolded by YouTube for using copyrighted media (sorry, I don't have original music).
The GoPro Hero 7 also splits long videos into parts. You can recombine them in Dashware, but if you want gauges, Dashware chokes on the data (telemetry) files. I had to install a kludgey 3rd party utility to merge the data files so that Dashware can read them. Then you have to import each raw video individually to create a data file, then use the utility to merge them.
Read this thread. While I appreciate the efforts on what I'm reading on trying to find something to make this work, I'm a bit concerned reading about "kludgy software" and "software crashing". I say this because noting that if one can't get a VM to run Windows on his or her host as it is already admittedly resource constrained, that may be one's issue with some of the performance and such in the other apps mentioned. I would be curious how this would perform if used with a host with more resources.
